Need the exact steps on how I can import Outlook .PST files directly into a user's mailbox within Exchange server 2010 on a Server 2011 SBS.

How can this be done?

I understand that this can be done by using either the GUI Exchange Management console or by using the command line Exchange Power Shell.

Can you please tell me how I can import these .PST files into Exchange 2010 by using either the GUI Exchange Management console or by using the command line Exchange Power Shell?

I would prefer to import these .PST files into Exchange 2010 by using the Exchange Management console.

Please provide me with the exact steps on how to do this.

I am very new to using Exchange server.

PLEASE NOTE: While I have also asked another question on how to complete this process using the Exmerge command, I would also like to know all the other ways on how this can be done since I understand that there are several ways of doing this.

I have never known Exchange 2010 to import the pst into the exchange mailbox.  This would be done on the clients outlook.

Steps -

Open outlook --> (outlook 2010) click File -> Account Settings --> Account Settings (again) --> Data Files --> Add --> click the folder where your pst is located --> click the pst --> click okay.  

That is how you get the pst into the clients.  Then if they want the data into the exchange account.  go into the folder you want to move --> select all --> move to folder

Without user interaction, this is the way to go:

You can use the CLI and run the following command:  new-mailboximportrequest
See article for detailed explanation and examples: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff607310.aspx

Just follow the example and you should be able to import to an existing mailbox without a problem.
